I woke up at 4 am today, unable to sleep anymore. Sometimes you come across stories that leave an impression. Last night I read a post by a mom, who had been traveling for many years with her daughter. The two of them exploring the world together. A few days back her daughter, only a few years younger than me, ended her life. The mom hopes that traveling would help in coping with her loss, but feels deep regret for the things that her beloved daughter would be missing. My heart goes out to the mom, and I sincerely hope that she finds happiness again.
There are numerous real-life stories of people trying to heal themselves by traveling, finding solace in places that make them appreciate life and slowly accept the truth about their loss. Betrayal, cheating, sexual assault, suicide – a lot of women have overcome the struggles that life had thrown on them.
These travel poems are for all those souls, trying to heal themselves by traveling to distant lands.
Kiss the wild winds
Pin for later
